I had to come down and visit Sydney as 2 new hotels have appeared. The Park Hyatt Sydney was closed for 8 months as they completely refurbished the entire hotel and added 3 sensational new suites on the 4th floor. I was lucky enough to stay a night as Andrew (the General Manager) allocated me into one of their Premium Deluxe Opera View rooms. The room looked right at the Opera House, boasting a large balcony with a chairs and tables to allow a chance to sit and marvel at this unique building.
The room itself is now more contemporary in style with great artwork in each room or suite. The rooms have Huge bathrooms, a large bath tub and separate shower that all have views of the Opera House.
The new suites are simply, WOW. The main Presidential 2 bedroom suite are indescribable – simply stunning. Almost 360 degree views of Sydney Harbour, the Bridge and Opera House. This is now one of the best places to view the New Years Eve fireworks, and whoever in this suite that night, will be in for the time of their life.
The Darling is the newest luxury hotel in Sydney, and is located in Pyrmont at Darling Harbour. The views are not of Circular Quay and the Opera House, but of the city and Darling Harbour. What sets this apart is the very large rooms and suites, over 20 restaurants in the complex (which includes the Astral Hotel and Astral Apartments), and the new trendy contemporary style. Walking through the hotel is a treat in itself, but the rooms are a delight.
